Waiting For Next Year:
As the Browns prepare to face the Redskins this weekend, they still are unsure of which quarterback will be behind center. RG3 sprained his knee this past weekend against the Ravens in a victory. The victory was completed with fellow rookie and backup Kirk Cousins operating the offense.
Now, ESPN is reporting that Robert Griffin III practiced today, but the results were mixed. RG3 looked normal stretching, but then appeared “gimpy” during throwing drills.
One thing that can be assumed by the Browns no matter who plays quarterback is that the running threat is decreased from what it was just a week ago. If Griffin plays, you have to assume he won’t be darting all over the field making plays with his feet and easily escaping pressure. Same rules apply if Kirk Cousins plays.
The Redskins are playing well right now anyway and for the Browns there’s no such thing as an “easy” game. Still, advantage Browns for now.

ESPN has come out and admitted that Rob Parker’s comments on First Take were inappropriate. An ESPN spokesman released the following statement: “The comments were inappropriate and we are evaluating our next steps.” In my opinion ESPN needs to fire Parker for all the racial ignorance that he let come out of his mouth. But I’m sure they’ll just give him a slap on the wrist...
Washington QB Robert Griffin III is participating in Thursday’s practice, according to Mike Jones.
Griffin reportedly was “a little more aggressive” planting on his injured knee, which obviously a great sign for Week 15 status.

“If I can give the team the best chance to win, then...

Robert Griffin III's knee is looking better.
The Washington Redskins rookie was back at practice Thursday, dealing with the effects of a sprained right knee as the team prepares for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.
Griffin stretched and made some basic throws during the 20 minutes that the practice was open to reporters. He was still favoring his right leg somewhat...
Earlier today, ESPN’s Rob Parker made some of the most ignorant comments anyone could make during an appearance on Thursday’s First Take.
Parker took things way too far when he questioned whether or not Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is “down for the cause” as a black man.
“I want to find about him,” Parker said. “I don’t know because I keep hearing these...
It’s an attitude that has no place in 2012 but that didn’t stop ESPN talking head Rob Parker from blathering on about it on First Take today. To hold the seemingly antiquated opinion that Robert Griffin may not be sufficiently black is one thing, but to announce it on national TV is foolish, reprehensible and cruel...
ESPN’s Rob Parker has been no stranger to controversy throughout his career. Back in October of 2008, Parker erroneously reported that then Michigan State quaterback Kirk Cousins (now with the Redskins) was involved in a fight with the school’s hockey team.

Let me try and lay it out a little. Wednesday, RG3...

By making some incredibly insensitive and idiotic comments about Robert Griffin III on Thursday, ESPN’s Rob Parker has created the buzz he was looking for. As you have probably heard, Parker questioned RG3′s blackness while pointing out that he is a Republican and has a white fiance, among other things.
After Parker made the comments on “First Take,” a Twitter user decided...
Cleveland head coach Pat Shurmur says his team is as ready to face Robert Griffin III as they’ve been all season-
“I think we’re as good as we’ve been to this point in the season. I think that’s fair to say. We’ve got our defensive tackles back. They’ve been playing quite a while now. Dimitri Patterson is back as the nickel player. He has a game under his belt after...
